Non-Surgical Facelift in Miami, Fl | Gables Plastic Surgery
Over time, our faces tend to lose their supple and youthful qualities. As dermal structures weaken, collagen production slows, and fat pads and bones lose volume, many of us begin to notice wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin developing across our faces and necks.
The loss of volume and laxity that occurs with age can also leave us looking tired or prematurely aged, which can affect our self-confidence and quality of life. If you are seeking to eliminate wrinkles, restore volume or re-tighten your facial skin, facelift surgery doesn’t always need to be your first choice.
A non-surgical facelift helps you address laxity and sagging for a tighter, firmer, smoother appearance. As a comfortable anti-aging treatment suitable for all skin types, there is a broad range of non-invasive options for cosmetic augmentation. From softening fine lines on your face to contouring and lifting sunken features, these modern non-surgical techniques can achieve dramatic results without the side effects, downtime, or recovery process required for traditional plastic surgery. With today’s technology, your minimally invasive facelift can be personalized to your unique features and result in a more balanced, refreshed, and radiant appearance.
At Gables Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jorge de la Pedraja in Miami, Florida, offers the latest and most effective options for non-surgical facelifts, rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, and all the popular injectables. Dr. de la Pedraja wholly dedicates his efforts to ensuring his patients are safe, have a premium experience, and receive outstanding results.
What Exactly Is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift, which combines minimally invasive and non-surgical procedures, is customized to rejuvenate a patient’s appearance. Unlike a surgical facelift, these procedures do not require incisions, general anesthesia, or overnight stays at a hospital. Non-invasive treatments quickly get patients in and out of their doctor’s office with minimal downtime and post-op discomfort. You don’t need to “go under the knife” to achieve significant anti-aging results.

What Are the Components of a Non-Surgical Facelift?
Dr. de la Pedraja custom-tailors each patient’s non-surgical facelift to meet their unique needs. He uses a selection of non-invasive techniques to address anything from fine lines, deep creases, laxity of the skin, thinning lips, sunken cheeks, and the loss of facial volume.
Common non-surgical facelift treatments include:
As the basis of non-surgical facelifts, dermal fillers immediately restore volume along the cheeks, temples, lips, and under the eyes. These smooth gel injectables:
- plump sunken areas
- eliminate dark shadows
- create a youthful vibrancy
When placed along the nasolabial folds from the nose’s outer corners to the mouth’s outer corners or marionette lines from the mouth’s outer corners down to the jawline, fillers can smooth tissues and create definition for a wrinkle-free look. Made from several products, including moisture-rich Hyaluronic Acid (HA), dermal fillers’ plumping and smoothing properties can last six months to more than a year.
Botox® is unmatched for wrinkle reduction. Typically used to smooth forehead creases, frown lines, and crow’s feet, Botox reduces dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles; it smooths lines caused by repetitive facial expressions. Although Botox does not provide immediate wrinkle relief, patients typically will see results within 1-2 weeks, and these can last three months.
Fat injections are a semi-invasive procedure where fatty tissue is extracted through liposuction from a donor area of the patient’s body. These fat cells are cleaned and processed and then reinjected into the face to boost facial volume. The fat cells will integrate with the existing tissues, enhancing youthful contours that will last for years.
Non-Surgical Facelift Maintenance
To maintain optimal results, non-invasive treatments need to be repeated every few months. Being diligent about maintaining these non-surgical treatments means you may need less over time. For example, after a Botox session, as the skin and muscles are relaxed, expression lines will not worsen. As a result, less product can provide similar results in the future. Additionally, the Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in dermal fillers will increase the body’s collagen production and create a refurbished layer beneath the skin. As a result, wrinkles are not as deep, resulting in fewer syringes of fillers being needed during future treatments.
No matter the treatment received by a patient, the aging process will continue. Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon means that each non-surgical facelift can be custom-tailored for your skin’s evolving needs.
